We have slowed to a crawling pace in Revelation 17, but an Arabic saying says that speed is of the devil. At least we cannot be accused of speeding. The present chapter offers an opportunity to put forward a new position on at least one issue that has confounded interpreters. And remember, we are still reading Revelation as a book that opens our minds to what was, what is, and what will be in human reality.
